Room 237 Teaser Trailer

The cult surrounding Kubrick's The Shining is so interesting that director Rodney Ascher and producer Tim Kirkdecided to make a documentary about it. Their film is called Room 237, and they describe it by saying, “Room 237 is a subjective documentary feature which explores numerous theories about Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and its hidden meanings. This guided tour through the most compelling attempts to decode this endlessly fascinating film will draw the audience into a new maze, one with endless detours and dead ends, many ways in, but no way out. Discover why many have been trapped in the Overlook for 30 years.” 

Are you a big Kubrick fan? Does this one sound interesting to you? Well, good news, because while this teaser that’s been put together for the doc doesn’t offer anything up in the way of footage,Room 237 still has stops to make along the festival circuit in towns like Sitges, Chicago, New York, and London, and recently IFC Films picked up the rights to its North American distribution. One way or another, a screening is likely to be coming your way soon. [via /Film]

Warner Prepping a Prequel to The Shining?

According to Dread Central:

Warner Bros. is apparently exploring the possibility of a prequel to The Shining, the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film based on the 1977 horror novel of the same name by Stephen King.

According to the LA Times, a person familiar with the project who was not authorized to talk about it publicly told them the studio has solicited the involvement of Hollywood writer-producer Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt to craft a new take as producers.

The film would focus on what happened before Jack Torrance, his wife, and their psychic son arrived at the haunted retreat where Torrance soon descends into violent madness. A WB spokeswoman cautioned that any Shining prequel is in a very early stage and not even formally in development.

I'll definately be keeping an eye on this one for you, constant readers.

Extended Cut of Kubrick's Shining in UK Theaters Halloween

According to a designer named Sam Ashby, there will be an extended version of Kubrick's The Shining released on Halloween this year in the UK.  It will include the 24 minutes of additional footage that was cut after the US release.

 

 

After it's initial launch in the US but before its European release, Kubrick cut 24 minutes from the film. Some say it was because of bad reviews other because he felt it needed tightening.

I think a lot of UK King fans have just become busy on Halloween night.
